    I have received my first Benchmade today, a Mini-Griptilian. Didn't expect it to be that small but I like it anyways.

    I'm just wondering if the marks on the last picture are normal?

    Pretty sure both of my full size Grips have them

    I believe its from the molding process.

    It is from the molding process. It's where the plastic enters the cavity.

    Thanks for your replies!
    I was hoping it's caused by the production process.
    And the size issue got better as well:[​IMG]

    yes, very normal.

    Molding marks from where the sprue was trimmed off the handles
